In general people used to have a negative attitude regarding sales people. Some still tend to view a sales professional as a door-to-door salesperson.
They view a sales person as someone trying to sell something to them that they don't need. These people may remember a profile of long ago - the vacuum cleaner salesperson!
What some people don't understand is that to be a professional sales person, many skills, qualities, abilities and immense knowledge are used. Today, sales professionals have the ability to earn as great or greater income than those they sell to. A great sales professional should and in many cases does receive great respect.
As a sales professional your role is a key element to the company as your position is the point-of-contact with the market. Everything depends on your ability to find and uncover needs – to solve customer problems – to transmit the right sales story and, in general, achieve the highest level of professionalism.
Although the definition of a sale is simple enough, the process of turning someone into a buyer can be very complex.
This workshop will give participants a basic sales process, plus some basic sales tools, that they can use to close the sale, no matter what the size of the sale.
